DEKALB, Ill. (AP) - DeKalb County authorities say a man going through a contentious divorce allegedly tried to frame his estranged wife by planting drugs and a gun in her vehicle.

WDKB-FM in DeKalb reports 35-year-old Nicholas Krengiel of Kingston allegedly tried to discredit the woman by having someone put the contraband in her car.

Police say they received a tip on Aug. 14 and found four grams of crack cocaine and a firearm in a vehicle belonging to Krengiel’s wife.

DeKalb police say they learned Krengiel allegedly paid an associate to obtain the gun and drugs and instructed him on how and when to plant the items.

Krengiel was arrested Wednesday and faces calculated criminal drug conspiracy charges. His bond was set at $250,000.

It wasn’t immediately known if Krengiel has legal representation.
